I'll say!! Now did you say they bloomed in early July? Or late summer?

Does anyone know of any very fragrant flowering plants/vines that do well in NC? Thanks.

Well, right now, my bleeding hearts, various ferns, columbine, hostas, and Irises are going nuts. My hydrangeas are just getting ready to bloom in May as are my gerbera daisies, day lillies and Asiatic lillies. By June, the crepe Myrtles, gardenias and strangely enough, my camelias again. By July, I expect that my annual impatiens will be in full bloom, my shasta daisies will be happy, my asters will be crazy for attention, my jasmine will be fragrant, my roses will still be blooming and my tomatoes and cucumbers will be JUST RIGHT!
This year we had early blooms because of the crazy weather. My daffodils came up in January, my dogwoods bloomed in March, and my Azaleas just finished up.

Try jasmine and daphene. Daphene has the most wonderful scent, but it's a flowering bush, not a vine. Jasmine is a beautiful trailing, fragrant vine and does very well here.
